STEAM Announcements

Art x Climate: National call for artists. Applications due 1/27/23

Art x Climate

Art x Climate seeks to strengthen partnerships between science and art and demonstrate the power of art to advance the national conversation around climate change.  The Fifth National Climate Assessment is a call to artists to creatively visualize climate change in the United States: its causes, impacts, and manifestations; our shared vulnerabilities; and the strength of our collective response.

  • Artists who wish to submit their works must do so by January 27, 2023.

Selected art submissions will be featured in the Fifth National Climate Assessment as chapter covers and within the chapters. Selected artworks may also be used in case studies, in public events, or in communication materials.

The U.S. Global Change Research Program, in collaboration with Smithsonian Institution, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Science Foundation, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, invites artists to engage in the development of this assessment.
